LRW #135--Wood-you?

Happy Wednesday!! It's time for a new Little Red Wagon challenge!!

This week, Regan has challenged us to use WOOD GRAIN on our projects.
I love this image/texture!!  You can use patterned paper, embossing folders, stamps, etc . . .

I settled for a woodgrain stamp that I've neglected lately (wPlus9 stamps),
and made this fairly CAS card.

I finally got to use some of my MME paper pad that I bought over a month ago but hadn't cracked open!

So . . . wood you dig out some wood grain out of your wagon and play along with us?!
Check out the LRW blog here for all the details and to check out what the rest of the DT created!

Edited:  Had to add this to the CAS-ual Friday challenge--Masculine card with designer paper.

Thanks 4 your time!

Happy Wedding Day!

It was my baby cousin's wedding yesterday, and what a gorgeous day it was!!

I rushed to make a card before we left. I know, that's horrible--I really don't know where the time goes lately; didn't even have time to set it up for a good photo.  I took the shot in the car on the way there-lol!  Like my manicure?! :P
I used her wedding colour scheme, and got to play with my new PTI Damask stamps (I bought a used set)!

Here's a shot of my DH and me, and another of the happy couple!

EDITED:  Just added this card to the Damask & Brocade Challenge over at Moxie Fab World!!!

Thanks 4 your time!

LRW #134--Oh Daddy-O!

With holiday Monday, this week's LRW challenge sure did sneak up on me quickly!!

This week Judy has challenged us to make a Father's Day card!
(So glad to have got on this occasion early enough since I didn't get my Mother's Day cards done--the ones I did make, I sold; so my poor mom and MIL didn't get one.  Pretty pathetic, eh?)

Without further ado, here's what I came up with.
Here's another (I made it last year, but never got around to posting it--more inspiration can't hurt)

Any way, hope you have the chance to play along this week and make a Father's Day Card

Thanks 4 your time!

LRW #132--Mist-ify Us

Here for another Little Red Wagon Challenge today!

Jan has asked that we use Mist on our projects.  
I haven't worked with mists a lot, but for this card, I inked up my rubber butterfly stamp with a light blue, and then misted the edges in pink.  I've always loved butterflies (I know Jan doesn't--sorry Jan)

So dig out your mists our of your wagon, and Mist-ify us with your project!
Be sure to check out what the rest of the LRW gals created over at the main blog (or click on their links in my sidebar)

Happy hump day!
Thanks 4 your time!

LRW #131--Stitching

Thank you Joanne for giving us a challenge I LOVE this week over at Little Red Wagon

Stitching  -- by hand or machine

I think I machine stitch on all my cards and layouts lately, so even though this may not have been a "challenge" for me in the true sense of the word, I still loved it because it allowed me to play with one of my favourite techniques.

I made this baby card for one of my dear girlfriends who just had her first baby.
 I love the texture of the embossing folder and the onesie, and the zig-zag stitching around the panel just gives it a Quilt sorta-feel.

I also thought I'd share this one that I made for another dear girlfriend who now lives out in B.C.  I tucked this card in to the baby gift I sent out for her new baby boy.
 My son hates clothing tags on his shirts, so I re-purposed this one that says "made with TLC" and stitched it onto the tag on my card.

Hope you have some time to play with us LRW gals this week!  
We'd love to see what you "stitch" up!!

Thanks 4 your time!
